AN EXPERIMENT IN ADULT READING IMPROVEMENT.
JOHNSON, JOSEPH C.
THE EFFICIENCY OF MACHINE VERSUS NONMACHINE INSTRUCTION IN READING IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS WAS APPRAISED. PRETESTS AND POST-TESTS WERE USED TO MEASURE RATE, VOCABULARY, AND COMPREHENSION FOR 60 RANDOMLY SELECTED ADULTS ENROLLED IN FOUR CLASSES. SUBJECTS FOLLOWED INDIVIDUALIZED PROCEDURE WITH PRESCRIBED MATERIALS, PREPARED HOME ASSIGNMENTS, AND ATTENDED LECTURES. SPECIAL MACHINE- AIDED TRAINING FOR THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WAS THE SINGLE VARIABLE. RESULTS INDICATED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES AMONG THE CLASSES FOR ANY AREA OF INVESTIGATION. REFERENCES ARE LISTED. THIS PAPER WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE 1967 YEARBOOK OF THE NATIONAL READING CONFERENCE. (MC)
